St Valentine's Day

Spend the most romantic day of the year in the place where the day's namesake was laid to rest.

In the Umbrian hometown of St Valentine, this is the place for loved-up couples to be on the most romantic day of the year! Celebrations of St Valentine take place in Terni throughout February, but are centrered around the feast which takes place on the 14th, near the Basilica where the Saint's remains were laid to rest. Other events which take place in the romantic month in Terni are the presentation of 'A Year of Loving' award which is almost as cheesy as it sounds and is given in honour of a particular act of love which the judges believes is worthy of the award! Enjoy three days of performance, poetry and painting, along with readings, street art, and philosophy as the city comes alive with all things amorous.

Getting here by train

The centre of Terni lies appoximately 500m to the south of the main train station, so the events taking place in the centre, as well as the resting place of St Valentine himself in the Basilica, just outside the centre, are easily accessible on foot.
